Sgt Lucas has been busy...
There is something else I previously neglected to mention regarding our friend "Sgt. Lucas" who is supposedly a member of the United States Air Force: the USAF does not
have the rank of Sergeant
. The rank abbreviated in writing by Sgt
as seen in the phony advertisement is for a U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant (Sgt)
with the enlisted pay grade of E-5, although you sometimes see it also written like that incorrectly for a U.S. Army Sergeant (SGT)
also in the enlisted pay grade of E-5.
Air Force Sergeants begin at Staff Sergeant E-5
, which is always written and abbreviated with SSgt
before their name. They have no such rank as Sergeant.
BTW: in both the Army and USMC, a Staff Sergeant
is the enlisted pay grade of E-6 and written respectively as SSG
My avatar depicts the chevrons of a US Marine Staff Sergeant.
This may seem trivial to some, but it shows the individual who wrote the con job letter didn't do his homework properly.--
